Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 1000 Typewriter

1 Answer

IBM WheelWriter 1000 turns on for a second and flashes all lights

Flip the switch, it clicks, all (but 1) of the LED's blink, the carriage clicks, then it turns "off". Checked all the connections, don't see anything loose.

IBM Wheelwriter 1000 Lexmark - Machine beeps and Lights 1,2 & 3 blink. Replaced batteries and still doesn't work.

This is an error code that the carriage or printwheel can't find it's home position. About the only thing you can try is to replace the printwheel or inspect it for bent or boken spokes. If that does not fix it then you will need a tech to troubleshoot problem.
